    The Visit
    After exploring Fletchers this was only a few miles down the road so decided to take a look and have to say we were all a bit disappointed, nothing on the ground floor and just mess on the first floor!

    Horse stables at the back were a bit strange.. would be interesting to know if anyone knows anything of the history of this part of the building

    The History
    Williamsons have been trading from the same premises in Mumps Bridge Oldham since 1920. This private family business is still run by members of the Williamson family. The business has grown considerably since the outset and now covers over two acres of warehouse space. Since 1969 they have become a major supplier of Fire Fighting and Rescue Equipment much of this equipment is to Home Office Specification and is available in both new and refurbished condition. Since 1975 they have also been suppliers of all variant types of new and refurbished conveyor systems.

    @BrainL Cant find anything on net. But seeing its 1920 and they show a very old car on website. Would presume horses where more used and just like steptoe and son used horses to deliver items etc. Thats one Possibility . Or it was used for fire horses in old days not sure but probably close has there where cart tracks in floor.
